The whole world has been talking about the great revelation that Halftime made. The fact that Jennifer Lopez had to share the time with Shakira is the only thing you will find on the internet today. Naturally, everyone on the internet had something to say about the issue. As a result, fans of the two celebrities have been debating about Lopez’s reaction to sharing the stage with Shakira at the 2020 Superbowl.
Want to find out what the fans are commenting? Then read along.
What happened between Jennifer Lopez and Shakira?
Jennifer Lopez disagreed with the NFL’S decision to have she and Shakira share 13 minutes for the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show.
In Jennifer’s new Netflix Documentary Halftime, we get an exclusive look into the performance’s planning. Jennifer shared that having two individuals perform in the Super Bowl was “the worst idea ever.” The singer-actress clarified that if NFL wanted two headliner shows, they should have given the two singers 20 minutes.
Shakira wasn’t pleased about the limited time either, resulting in a rather tense practicing session. Lopez’s manager Benny Medina doesn’t mince his words in the documentary, calling the need to have two artists to headline a show that’s been historically done by one artist an “insult.”
What are the fans saying?
Ever since the documentary premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and people got see the reaction of the two singers, that is all they have been talking about. The debate soon gained momentum as fans of both artists defended their favorite. The hot topic was whether Lopez’s disappointment was justified or not and if her dig at NFL was also a shade to Shakira.
Many people think that what Lopez felt at that time was entirely justified and had nothing to do with Shakira. While others disagreed and shared how many artists in the past have shared the Super Bowl stage. Some fans also explained why Lopez was angry in the first place, which was misconstrued to be a dig at Shakira.
She was not mad at Shakira she was mad they forced two women who could headline their own shows onto the same stage and only gave them 12 minutes pic.twitter.com/nnIZ1VeTHl

I’m no JLo apologist, but in the film, she says she was unhappy that the NFL booked 2 official headliners but made them split the 13-minute time slot that’s usually allotted to one act.
I’ve seen the doc multiple times and there is no Shakira slander https://t.co/71qTqO4ZLU

Y’all literally didn’t even read the article she literally just says it’s rude that they down play both of them instead of having just one artist! They essentially made it seem like neither of them would be good enough to perform alone

Jennifer isn’t a diva for expressing that standpoint in her documentary #Halftime. The media is already setting her up with headlines like “Jennifer Lopez angry she had to share Super Bowl stage with Shakira” with no contextual meaning.

The Super Bowl stage has been shared by many people!! Maroon 5 shared it with SpeakerBoxx and Travis Scott! Beyoncé did it with Kelly and Michelle. Hell! Coldplay call her and Bruno back even though they both did it already! Should we forget B.E.P?? Girl bye!!
